Drugs & Alcohol
Sex and Drugs
Recreational drugs and alcohol are part of the lives of many young people. Often no serious harm is caused, but this is not always the case.
Drugs and alcohol can have dramatic effects on your sexual behaviour. They can make you more likely to have casual sex, and less likely to use condoms, leaving you at risk of exposure to HIV and other sexually transmitted infections. Some drugs can also have a negative impact on your relationships or your sexual performance.
If you are concerned about your drug and alcohol use, contact one of the local support services listed below. Their services are free and confidential.
